Halloween Charades

Sweet Pea is 8 years old.
 Free Printable Halloween Picture Cards for a Classroom Charades Game

 

From: I was looking for some activities for Sweet Pea’s classroom Halloween party and got the idea for a game of Halloween themed charades from EasyPartyIdeasAndGames.com.  Since we were going to be playing with beginning readers (1st, 2nd and 3rd graders), I wanted to make Halloween word cards that included pictures. 

Material:

  • A group of willing charades players.

Procedure:

  • Print the Halloween Picture Cards and laminate if desired.
  • Cut the pages into cards.

  • Decide if you will be playing with teams (more competitive) or as a big group (more laid back).
    • One Group Rules (without keeping score)
      • Pick a person to keep track of time.
      • Pick a player to start.  Without looking that player selects a card.
      • The timer should start the timer for 2 minutes.
      • The player stands in front of the group and tries to act out the word on the card without making any noise.
      • The rest of the group tries to guess what word was on the card.
      • The first person who correctly guesses the word becomes the next player.  
      • If time runs out without anyone guessing, they reveal the answer and randomly select another person to be the next player.
    • Team Rules (with scoring)
      • Split the group evenly into two teams.
      • One person from the first team selects a card and tries to act out the word or phrase without making any noise.  
      • The rest of the players on the first team remain quiet while all the players on the second team try to guess the answer.  
      • If someone from the second team guesses correctly before time runs out, then that team gets a point.  If no one guesses, then the correct answer is revealed and no one gets a point.
      • It is now someone on the second teams turn to select a card and act it out while the first team tries to guess.  
      • Repeat until everyone has had a chance to act out a card and the teams have had an even number of turns.
      • The team with the most points wins.

Observations:  I figured other people might want to use the cards so I am publishing this before we actually play charades.   We will be playing with the non-competitive “one group rules”.  I will update the post and let you know how it went sometime after Halloween.  🙂
